Sveta Lucija type fibula

Fibula from Most na Soči

The arch fibula of Sveta Lucija type is one of the most prominent parts of the national costume worn in Posočje, Bohinj and the Nadiža River Valley at the end of the 6th and in the 5th century BC. These pins were named after the central settlement of this culture, Most na Soči (formerly Sveta Lucija), where most of them were discovered.

This fibula of Sveta Lucija type was a typical pin for women and, at the same time, a distinct representation of the then design trend in the Soča Region; outside the region, finds of such fibulae are very rare. Differently shaped pendants, which are an integral part of the fibulae of Sveta Lucija type, were also often made in regional workshops.
